Limerick City and County Council will host the seventh series of exploratory lectures on Limerick’s unique built heritage this autumn.

The lectures look at a variety of architecture through the ages including the earliest houses from pre-history in Lough Gur, the great castles and range of medieval art and architecture in the region, the consideration of hidden dwellers in our buildings and structures, and the contemporary domestic design for 21st century Limerick.

The lecture series is held biennially, and organised and funded by Limerick City and County Council. Members of the public are invited to attend and all the lectures are free.

The series commences Tuesday, 29th September at 8pm in the Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House Hotel Adare, and continues fortnightly until Tuesday, 24th November.
